“...Probably my favorite Dylan cover on what is easily my favorite Jerry Garcia Band recording. If not my favorite of any of Jerry's live output, The "After Midnight- Kean College 1980" show.
Then watch the show from the next night, 03/01/80 ... Two of his best ever....”

French singer (and obsessed Bob Dylan scholar) Francis Cabrel translated this song for his Dylan cover album Vise le Ciel. The whole album is a treasure, but this is particularly lovely: Un simple coup du sort

"Twiddy"? Is that a joke I'm not getting?

Tangled Up in Blue is a hall of mirrors, mists and regrets. Which take is most sublime ? Depends. Upon time and perspective. And other things.

Love the JGB. Jerry does great covers of Dylan. The Dead do too.

One of my favorite covers of Dylan is from Mary Lee Corvette. She covers the entire Blood on the Tracks album. Worth a listen.
